SMD: Pissing Beer: CD

Yogi said that one of the guys in the band gave this to him at Al’s Bar recently to, in turn, pass to me to review. Drunken speedcore here from the breweries of East Los Angeles. Pico Rivera to be exact. They chug along, sounding like a sloppy, pissed MDC, singing the praises of drinking, being drunk, anger, assault and battery, and even take nearly a minute to cover GG Allin. Musically, they’ve got the goods, but it’s hard to distinguish them lyrically from the thousands of oi bands that sing the same kinds of things. Hell, Gang Green made a career out of this exact thing 10-20 years ago. In short, I like the songs, but the beer’s getting a little stale.
